@doglover i agree some people do like the taste of beer..or acquire a taste for it. i know social drinkers who can have one beer with a meal...or maybe after a hard day working in the yard.... and enjoy it. they don't abuse it or depend on it... just like the taste like they like coke with pizza. i also know those who drink to get drunk...and don't think much about the taste... there is non-alcoholic beer... and it tastes pretty good! if you're looking for an alternative to beer, try that. i like kombucha..ginger kind. the bite reminds me of a beer. works for me!
